I am proud to announce that FINALLY 16.05 is finished. Not much has changed on the surface for the end users however I have spent a great amount of time switching the way things are handled in the backend so that building and maintaining is both easier and less time consuming on my part.

Manjaro has decided to switch from their Menda theme group to a Vertex theme with maia styling. Like Manjaro, we have also decided to switch and use the Vertex theme with Manjaro-Arm Base edition. Currently the theme is being worked on however, it looks great and is compatible with gtk 3.20.
